This tablecloth really speaks to me—I love the colour combination, the feel of the fabric, and the fact that it is handmade. Greg and I spent half a year in India in 2003/2004, and one of the things I most remember is the time we spent touring a textile museum. During the tour we learnt all about the different printing techniques used in India. My favourite printing technique that we learnt about is block printing, like what is used to create the patterns on this tablecloth.
Silver raindrops shower on this lovely light-weight cotton tablecloth with a tomato red background and intricate silver border.

What I love about handmade products is the imperfections. Mass-produced items look too uniform, without any interesting details.
Rakesh Hand Printers is a family business that specializes in hand block printed textiles. It is named after Rakesh Anchara, the youngest of three generations of textile printers. Anchara’s family started the business in a small township called Sanganer on the outskirts of Jaipur, the bustling capital of Rajasthan. Sanganer is renowned for its ethnic textile products and it is here that Anchara works with 5 other artisans to create beautiful hand blockprinted bed covers, cushion covers, tablecloths, runners and napkins.
